Hi there,

A big thank you to all, and in particular any forum members, who entered this year's Maker of the Year awards presented by Carbitool!

Entries closed at 11:59pm last Monday and for the life of me I can't understand why so many people literally leave it till the last minute...

The upshot is that 345 outstanding pieces of fine woodworking and wood art from Australia, New Zealand and every continent of the world now reside on our website for all to see. To see all the entries for Maker of the Year presented by Carbitool, click on the category icons on this page: Maker of the Year Awards 2023 - Australian Wood Review

Well continue to share entries on the Facebook and Instagram pages, but for now theres a lull while our highly valued judges deliberate and what a difficult a job they have on their hands
